Celebrate Good Times

Today is a day for celebration. Today marks my 100th post. Wow. 100 completely random topics and you all are still here. I love each and every one of you. {sniffles}


To celebrate my 100th post, I am going to throw myself a little party and you all are invited. Remember, no party is complete without balloons and cake.


If it were real, I'd submit it to Cake Wrecks

And some booze. I mean, what party is complete without at least a few dozen margaritas?




Now, for the guest of honor...








Me of course! And I have prepared a speech. {Clears throat}




Thank you, to all of my readers. You truly make blogging the best part of my day. Your comments make me smile, always.
I’ve met so many awesome blogging friends on here and that was something I never expected when I joined the blogosphere.
I started Jumble Mash back in July for a number of reasons. One, because I read blogs like Hyperbole and a Half, The Bloggess, and EPBOT everyday and decided that I wanted a place of my own. Two, because I wanted someone to listen to me while I ranted about different topics. And three, because I wanted something to escape to when I was bored or down.


Its original name was My Two Cents, but someone took it and has never posted a thing on the blog. Don’t you hate that? Like, don’t take a name and then do nothing with it. Grr. Anyways, then the name changed to Tress Says, but I hated that. So I went to an online thesaurus and typed in the word random. Right there in the list were two words side by side. Jumble and mash. It was love.


The first mascot of Jumble Mash was a cute little cartoon monkey, but I wasn’t really feeling it. I opened up Microsoft Paint one day and drew the pink turtle you see every time you come here. It was my own creation, and it just fits me.


I never really thought I would get so into blogging, but it sucked me right in. Every day, my brain is constantly thinking of the next thing I want to blog about. Every time something happens, I think to myself, “I’m totally blogging about that.”
And you all completely fascinate me. I never thought anyone would be interested in my thoughts and nonsense, but here you are, reading my 100th post.


Thank you. I wish you could all come to a real party. In my new huge back yard. We could drink margaritas until the wee hours of the morning and then I would go back to my computer and blog about what an awesome time I had.


P.S. I had every intention of having a giveaway, but through the moving process, Boyfriend and I are the ones that need free shit. So I'm going to have to save the giveaway for a later date.

A strawberry margarita on the rocks. Now that's a party in itself. Love them. Congrats on the post too. I know we are new to each other but I really am enjoying you. And I'm a lot older so that should tell you that you're talented.

What a great pic too. You're beautiful.

Yay! I am glad I found your blog recent;ly. (Actually I think you find mine and then I started following you). You really have a great blog and I prefer the name Jumble Mash to My Two Cents.

Happy 100th! Isnt it crazy? I was similar to you inthat I didnt think I would get sucked in. Heres to another 100 and I bet you that youll get to it quicker than you reached your first 100. Good luck with the move and maybe you can host party at your new place ;) LOL

Barb called me beautiful. I love her.

Anyways, thanks everyone!! And I am not sure where the monkey went. I searched and searched and couldn't find the little bastard. If I find him, I promise he will stop by and say hello.
